    correct! it took me ages to work it out! but i guess you'd already heard it huh?

    next riddle:

    a man is found in the middle of the desert.
    he is naked, dead, and has half a match in his hand.

    you need to tell me:
    how he died, how he got to the desert, why he is naked and why he has half a match in his hand

    how he died: heart attack

    he was part of a the spec ops squad, they had a special mission - to seek out hostile forces in a random bit of desert, his name was bob....after finding no hostility they were stuck there for a while.

    "hey lets forget this mission and crack open a few beers" said the marine commander

    and so they drank on into the wee hours of the night
    bob was thinking of his wife hugging his beloved match she had given him before he left

    "every time you feel lonely! take this match and think of me!" she had said

    bob sure was missing her and little timmy back home... oh the open corn feilds of scarborough...

    suddenly gun fire *NIII NII NII*??

    but bob was in the middle of a shower, but no time! he grabbed his gun and ran outside.... but it was too late they were dead... [dun dunn]
    grief striken bob head out into the desert looking for hope of settlers to help him get back home... but it was no luck... he clutched the match tighter and tighter... with his last breath... i love you mrs bob
    *tear rolls down eye*

    yes i was bored :p

    He was having a shower in a plane flying overhead, the power went out so he lit a match and tried to find his way out the shower of the plane but the match ran out and he accidentally opened the door to the outside of the plane falling to his death?

    can we have confirmation wether the match had been stuck or not?

    who is going to light a match in a shower anyway!? my story is far more realistic! :p

    none of your stories are close to the real thing...apart from a small detail from one of them.
    whether the match was struck or not would not change anything to the riddle.
    next clue:
    best way to start this, is to work out how he got to the desert.
    it wasnt a plane, and he didnt walk there.

    he didnt die of a heart attack, but the closest is him falling out of the plane, but not quite right.
  14. Slindsay

    Got it!

    He was part of an expedition, they got lost and realised that they only had enough water for all but 1 of them to make it out of the dessert, they draw matches to see who will be left behind, the one who draws the broken match (Our guy) is left behind, he gives all his clothes to the others from the expedition for shade and to keep them warm at night.
  15. cavallin

    cavallin kickin' kitten

    you got the match bit correct : he drew the short straw, but not for the reason u stated.
    so, how did he get to the desert, ie: transport!!!
    how did he die, remember the earlier clues, he fell out of ^^^
    then why is he naked?
    he has half a match cos he drew the short straw for omething you wont find out till u get the first one ^^
  16. TomB

    he was hand gliding when a freak tornado blew all his clothes off


    he fell out of heaven because the gods were playing some sort of sick match game
  17. Slindsay

    He was in a hot air balloon flying over the dessert.

    They realised they where running out of height or wind or whatever so they lighten the load by getting naked and throwing away their clothes.

    Wasnt enoughs so they drew matches, he got the short one and jumped out of the balloon falling to his death.
